I’m using GL-AR750.
I use it as a permanent home vpn router but it freezes/requires restart every few days. Maximum stability I got is 7-10 days.
I Understand it’s a cheap, personal use router. I’m willing to invest but I want something that is install and forget.
It would be a wrong comparison but when I see some enterprise routers running for 5 year’s tirelessly, I want something like that.

What’s freezing 2.4ghz wireless or 5ghz?
You might need to run pure openwrt which has minimum services running

Everything or anything freezes in general randomly.
Goodcloud can’t see it
router responds to ping but not https
internet working but dns stops working
A stable platform should not have random issues on hourly/daily/weekly unless some changes are made to it.
Even cheap stock wifi routers modems can work tirelessly forever without needing any attention.
But I’m not sure if my AR-750 just keeps running into bugs.
I have learnt to live with rebooting it or troubleshooting it but It gets annoying at times.

I have the same model but not the same problems. Running Wireguard for all the devices (except 2 Chromecast), have more than 20 smart home devices, 3 PC connected and it even serves me as a NAS for 2 security cameras (they copy the recorded videos in realtime on a 256GB SD), I am also running NextDNS using Https-Dns-Proxy and everything is rock stable on latest firmware, no freeze or reboots. Are you sure that your settings are ok?

I have factory reset my ar750 and removed memory card as well.
Trying to get rid of any unused feature i may have installed .
Will see how it goes over next few weeks

Your joint helped me.
I have probably some feature running that made it unstable.
It’s been working for 10 days now without requiring any TLC
